By James Shone

Some warm words for James at the close of his presentation to pupils at Seaford College:
George Vernon, Director of Middle School reflected on the talk and said: “I have the greatest respect for James Shone and I found his talk utterly life affirming. He reassured us about some cherished morals, instinctive values and the importance of mental resilience, which are so easy to forget in this fast-paced modern world. The impact and influence that James had on both pupils and staff was literally mesmerising; the whole of the middle school sat totally transfixed by James’ story, one that taught them how to face the daunting prospects of some of life’s most brutal challenges. His speech was both heart breaking and harrowing, but ultimately James’ audience left the auditorium enraptured with a strange sense of elation. No matter what life throws at you, there is nothing that you cannot overcome. I can and I am! These lessons will no doubt become more and more clear to our pupils in the future, whichever route they have to take.”
